Hercules Parallel Computing Cluster

Researchers at Southwest Research Institute's Department of Space Studies have implemented an Avalon-style parallel computing cluster, Hercules, for numerically intensive simulations which would take impractically long (years) on a single workstation.
Hardware for this project was provided in part by the National Science Foundation and NASA's Planetary Geology and Geophysics Program.
